Flag_of_CaliforniaStates such as Connecticut, Maryland, New York and Colorado just recently passed some of the strictest gun control legislation in the United States. California, which has long been the definition of anti gun policy making has decided it will not be outdone in the game of who can be the most anti gun state.

With that in mind, the California state senate today passed a multitude of anti gun bills. Two of them are particularly bad.

The first will require background checks for anyone who is buying or selling ammo. Ammo is already expensive and hard to come by. What do you think these additional requirements are going to do to the cost of ammo in CA? Will ammo EVER be readily available again in CA if these bills are signed into law?

The second bill, according to the LA Times,

The Senate also approved a bill that would outlaw the sale, purchase and manufacture in California of semiautomatic rifles that can accept detachable magazines. SB 374 also would require those who own such weapons to register them with the state.

Other measures approved by the Senate would ban the possession of ammunition magazines capable of holding more than 10 bullets, and regulate mechanisms, called “bullet buttons,” that allow the quick replacement of ammunition magazines on semiautomatic rifles.

Uh. Wouldn’t banning rifles that can accept detachable magazines along with rifles that use bullet buttons (mechanisms that significantly slow down the changing of magazines) effectively ban most modern semi automatic rifles in the state of California?

Not all of the California state lawmakers are off their rockers. Some are even denouncing the measures.

Sen. Jim Nielsen (R-Gerber) opposed the measure as too broad. “We are criminalizing legal, historic behavior in the state of California and putting onerous burdens and regulations and requirements on law-abiding citizens.”

One thing is for sure, I will not be stepping foot in California anytime soon. They can keep their earthquakes and gun control. California gun owners: you are more than welcome to join us in the free states.
